Can I change the language in a whole book using Calibre?

I have a popular book in PDF format but it is the Spanish version. (I can convert it to Microsoft Word if I want to.)

Can Calibre or any other device mentioned in this website convert the language to English? If and when that is done, can I then convert it to e-Pub format?

Thanks

Much easier to buy the English version or get an exchange. You could cut and paste into a translation program, but will probably be quite ugly and take forever.

I would buy the book in English if I could. The book in question is 'Casino' by 'Nicolas Pileggi' as in the film. I cannot find this book anywhere in e-book format.

I can only find it in hardback and paperback, that is no good to me.

I thought about translating it on the web but you are right, it would take ages. I just thought there was a way of doing it for the whole book in one go.

Oh well

This is certainly not a Calibre facility. Not sure if there would be any realistic way of achieving such a translation.
